for the conservative caucus is the panama canal. their idea, roughly speaking, is we need to invade panama and talk the panama canal back because obviously, communists or something. the panama canal and up all night hair on fire fantasies about communists coming up the canal to come get us in the middle of the night, those have been around for a while, in the 1970s and the 1980s. the panama canal was the fast and furious, birth certificate, the president is a secret muslim conspiracy theory of its day. when that panama canal conspiracy theory was lighting up the tin foil hats of the generation ago, it was an ambition politician named ronal reagan who took that issue from the fringe and decide today mainstream it into national mainstream republican politics. he based his presidential campaign in part on this insane idea that the panama canal was basically an american state that we can't let the communists steal this american thing from us. he mainstreamed this paranoid far right fantasy that if we went along with our treaty obligations to let panama run its own canal, then america would seize to exi

investment funds from wealthy foreigners most of the money through corporations registered in panama. some of the most secretive of business laws exist there in panama. does that story prove the president's points, that business leaders don't come by successful initiatives on their own? >> well, i think certainly not, tom. i think the recent polls you've cited have shown that the president's false attacks on mitt romney aren't working right now and the people care about the economy. i want to turn to your point about the context of the president's you didn't build that remark. there was a good article by phil klein this morning saying that the contextually made that comment worse. if you look at the whole speech and what he's arguing, it's that the way that we're going to fix this economy, the way that we're going to get out of this ditch is through more government and not by unleashing the private sector. his argument was that people, small business owners, you're not that smart, you didn't work that hard, you didn't earn that. it happened because of the government. that's the wrong way t

corporations registered in panama. and then known for tax advantages and unusual banking secrecy. in an interview with abc news this morning, anne romney was asked to respond to thebain attacks and she came out swinging. >> i was beneath the dignity of the office of the president to do something as egregious as that. to attack somebody on that level is i believe beneath his dignity. >> nbc's senior political editor mark murray is here. he joins me now. and mark, fascinating numbers on the polls. we'll put it up there. 47-46. obama 47-41. razor thin race and obama seems to be just brought down by his handling of the economy. can't shake it. >> luke, there are two forces at play which show why the polls pretty much are the same. that this race is essentially tied or deadlocked, however you want to describe it. the economic forces keeping president obama down, but also, the fact that people aren't yet still sold on mitt romney. and these two forces are at play right now which explains why we see president obama up two or three points up in one poll. overall i don't think the race wi
years as we see the kinds of situations we found ourselves in. i can go back to the invasion of panama in 1989 and go forward. we realize just having a military battle that you want is not the end of the game,. perhaps he should have done more in the beginning to avoid that battle for having won the battle, how do we keep the peace and preserve the peace tax would have to be careful when we talk about these terms such as smart power or hard power or soft power. i am reminded of a conversation i had with the former archbishop of canterbury. in 2003. you might have been there. it was on the eve of the gulf war. the archbishops stood up and said," general powell, why don't we just use soft power?" it was a critique of what we are getting ready to do. it was not soft power that rescued britain from hitler. it was hard power and you have to have that. but when we won world war two with hard power, we switched to soft power in asia and germany to create democracy. the importance of this coalition that makes what we are doing so very important is that we understand that we needed all but we h

says quote, most of the foreign investors' money came through corporations registered in panama. then known for tax advantages and unusual banking secrecy. but it didn't matter to romney where the money was coming from, he knew there was little risk to him in starting his investment fund. he was assured by his boss bill bain back in 1984 that starting up bain capital would be a non-risk prospect for romney. ezra klein at the washington post writes, romney would get his old job and salary back plus any raises he would have earned during his absence. and bain promised that if necessary he would craft a cover story saying that romney's return to bain and company was needed because of his value as a consultant. so there was no professional or financial risk. no professional or financial risk. that's the kind of security that's denied to most americans. there's also news today undercutting romney's claim that he left bain back in 1999 to run the salt lake city olympics. >> i had no association with the banishment of bain capital after february of 1999. that's when i left the firm. i'
mccain was born on a military base in the panama canal zone to u.s. sill citizen military employees. generally speaking, people thought about it. he hired a legal scholar and others did and everyone determined yes, he is qualified. >> because of the mill base. >> it was a military base. his parents are u.s. citizen and who were serving the country and therefore, he is a u.s. citizen. but, the concept of natural born, believe it or not, has never been definitively tested in our courts. some say it has to go to the supreme court. some say the constitution should be amended to make it clear contactually what we mean. but generally speaking, for a child who is born to a u.s. citizen who is serving in the military, they are considered naturally born citizen. now, does that child become a dual citizen of the u.s. and the host country? that depends on the rules of the host country. they are automatically u.s. citizen. whether or not they become a citizen of wherever, whatever country they're in, depends on the rules of that country. >> a lot of red tape. >> it is all very, very interesting
importantly, i don't see pensacola, i don't see fort walton, i don't see panama city beach, not the redneck riviera. >> mcclain. >> mcclain, come on. it looks like a town where a bunch of hip peas hang out and smoke pot or something. >> you sound the way colbert drilled me one day. it's great to see you, joe, and you know i visited pensacola a number of times and worked with them on making their city and helping their institute and everything they're doing down there. and they're doing good. florida is better. i spend the winter in miami, but it's got toin ve invest a little in that technology, it's got to bring skills. huntsville does great. it may not be tuskarawas loocal it's doing great at growing its economy. >> we have a chance to grow in the next 20, 30, 40 years. if we crack the code on an energy source that's cheap enough and economical enough that we can produce it on scale and run the economy, you will see smaller college towns just like richard is talking about absolutely explode. instead of some oil taxes in sau saudi arabia or some natural gas fields in pennsylvania, you will
by panama money, foreign money sources. is this a legitimate argument to have? >> it's all legitimate because it gets to who these people are, how they made their money. how they could possibly run things as president. but look, mitt romney is whacking away at president obama's achilles heel, which is jobs. the weak economy and the fact that jobs just aren't growing as fast as the american people would like. president obama is whacking away at mitt romney's achilles heel over the tax issue, over his lack of disclosure and you know, i agree with susan that there will be a reset button hit strategically advantageously for mitt romney. but i say ultimately, this tax return issue is an issue that's not going to go away. it just isn't. if the romney campaign doesn't do something before the debates, he's going to get whacked really, really hard. because this gets to -- the overall issue of transparency. whether you can trust the person who you are hoping -- who is asking you for your vote, that he's being transparent about how he's made his money. >> what is the job application? >> somethin
, the caribbean, the panama canal, the north atlantic. 35-foot seas. that was exciting. she is a battleship. you take a look around and you will see why. this is where all the big decisions of the war were made back in world war ii in the '40s. you get chills coming into a place like this. we helped to shell korea, the russians were like, look at that ship. back in the '40s, during the conference, president roosevelt was on board the ship so he took this and used it as his taxi to go across the ocean to meet with churchill and stalin. he was in a wheelchair, as you know. this was where he stayed. because this is the only ship in the navy with a bathtub. past, present and future. president roosevelt took a bath in this bathtub. in the '80 they retro fitted the ship and these are for anti-aircraft and we could bombard the shore, too. they would fire 15 rounds a minute. here's one of her guns. 16 inch in diameter. i could fit in there. each one of these barrels, 67 feet long. fire a projectile 24 miles. one day i fired the guns, too. i did not hear the boom like you would out here but i felt the co

about passage of the panama, colombia, and korea free trade agreements, and once again they are providing tremendous leadership on our goal of creating good american jobs by prying open that mark and ensuring that the united states worker will have access to it. if you think about not only creating jobs here, but dealing with the problems of crony capitalism, dealing with the problems of a massive bureaucracy, and dealing with a corrupt court system which is what exists under putin today, this is the right thing for us to do. we should not lose access to the market. i also want to note that my very good friend, mr. herger, who has been a great leader on the issue of trade is here, mr. berg is here who has very involved in this. i would be happy to yield to my friend from new york, mr. reed, who has played an important role on this issue. mr. reed: i thank the gentleman. i rise today in strong support to join my friend from california as he knows we have been supportive of free trade from the moment we got here. i was so pleased to see colombia, panama, and south korea b
the panama and then across the is mas -- is mas -- isthmus of panama and up the coast of california. my own relatives took advantage of the two infrastructure projects you talked about. however, your governor was building off some of the work of the founding fathers. a lot of talk about here that there's no role for government in the economy. george washington disagreed. his treasury secretary, alexander hamilton, disagree. they had a debate with jefferson who thought that we ought to be an agrarian state and george washington and hamilton thought there was a role for industrial and manufacturing. so george washington in his very first days as president put -- told alexander hamilton to put together an industrial policy for america. and there were about, i think, nine points or maybe 12 points in that industrial policy. one of them was, build the infrastructure. specifically it said canals and harbors. this gos back to the very beginning of our country, what the president wanted to do and what us democrats want to do is build the infrastructure. the foundation upon which the economy grows.
, south korea and panama because we believe in the sale and the opportunity for american producers to sell their product around the globe. and yet, we saw at least some who at usda have the view that we need to be discouraging the consumption of meat for both environmental and health reasons. particularly troublesome is the fact that the department of agriculture was citing the united nations as a reason that we ought to discourage the consumption of beef for environmental reasons. our department of agriculture' positions ought to be based on sound science, not some u.n. study. beef is an important and vital component of the kansas economy. we're the second-largest beef-producing state in the country. economic impact to our country is around $44 billion. exports in 2011, beef exports were over $4.08 billion. this matters to us greatly. and this is happening at a time in which the cattle producers of kansas and across the midwest, including the state of the president today, the drought is so damaging to us. it's also happening at a time in which we've been having a debate about a farm bill.
